"The Frankston Line" as written by and William Toby Martin....
The day is grey, don't love you anymore
The sun smiles on the red tiles, I don't love you anymore
The Frankston Line's full of teenage crime
And the cops can't do no more
Hooded topes, cigarettes at stops, I don't love you anymore

I'll leave you, I won't leave you
The sea's so beautiful

The council plans for seaside plans mean beauty writ of law
Views of seas in legalese, I don't love you anymore

I searched through your house for my skin
We end to begin
The sea dog will say it's alright
We'll be alright

    General CommentHah I live in Frankston and the lines
    "The Frankston Line's full of teenage crime
    And the cops can't do no more
    Hooded topes, cigarettes at stops" Are pretty much true. Catching a Frankston train is the scariest thing someone could do.
    Awesome song tho!

    General CommentYep they are aussies. just like u and just like me. not entirely sure on this one so dont quote me but i read somewhere they r from sydney...?
    This song kinda sounds like its about opening your eyes and realising there has been alot going on around u that perhaps u didnt notice b4. mayb blinded by love? and at the end it says "we'll be alright" so mayb upon seeing all thats wrong around ur r/s u realise wat u have isnt really that bad.
    thats jst my interpretation.

    General Commenti come from frankston!...well nearby anyway, itsl ike the next town (and here towns arent far away, its not like country or anything) just for the record, frankston is full of crime, its probably one of the most crime ridden places in the state (Victoria) other than innercity areas of Melbourne (there ya go, a lesson ont he crime rate of part of Australia, isnt anyone reading this lucky!)

    As for the song, well i think it may be leaving home, like a person who cared deeply about where their roots lay, but now are uprooting and leaving, even though they may not want to...just my opinion
